Cheap data plan for kids

The 35% discount is no longer being offered. recently FM offered a 25% discount but the min. plan cost has to be $60, whereas previously it was $40. From time to time different stores offer the 25% discount, but they don't advertise.
RBO: Check with Freedom mobile. Recently, we got very good deal two months ago. Friends & Family 35% Off Back to School offer. Plan is amazing: Home Network Data: 10GB full-speed data Talk: Unlimited Canada-wide calling Text: Unlimited global text, picture and video messaging Away
G13: I use Koodo for my child - i got it for 30$ unlimited voice / text, 1 GB data - son still not happy - i guess it is the data part.
